Those were slick beyond compare. This already seems miles above Morning's Wrath. I think you really found your calling with this one.

Two recommendations.

1) Have Rebecca walk over to whatever she is inspecting/taking/licking, so that she is next to it when she speaks her dialogue. I believe this is how MI did it. Seems more "realistic". It was wierd to have her describe something she was a screen's length away from.

2) More "throwaway" animations. The tikibar one was fantastic. They probably require a lot of work, but will pay off big time as far as humor goes. MI was pretty good with this kind of stuff. Exaggerated movements go a long way for humor (unless you take it too far -- but considering limited resources, I doubt that could happen).

If you buy me a PC, I will buy the game =D

Some things we need to tune to get her closer to, however there are some things in-game you cant walk up to because they aren't exceptionally important 'e.g. a palm tree' so she surveys them at a distance.

Hehe you answered your own question there, indeed it takes an incredible amount of effort to animate things, but we will be doing more, this is still the 'rough pass' once parts 2 and 3 are completed we will go back over with play testers and gather up lists of changes and implement them.

I might not need to, there be plans for a mac version if the Morning's Wrath Mac version goes well.

Ooh, now there is a hot tip! If there is a Mac version, you have my promise to buy. I can't get enough adventure games, and this one looks fun.

Also, keep this streak of media going. I dig it.

By the by, take a look at HoA, will ya? I would love to hear your thoughts on the tech demo. There isn't really much there, but being a successful indie man, I would love to hear your thoughts.
